Justin Bieber is saying sorry — for fooling his followers into thinking wife Hailey Baldwin was pregnant.

On April 1, Bieber posted prank photos on Instagram that suggested Baldwin was pregnant. He first shared a sonogram picture, followed by a photo of Baldwin on a doctor's table with her hands on her belly. Websites and news outlets speculated whether the new couple, married last year, were expecting.

But apparently not everyone was laughing.

The next day, Bieber apologized for his joke, saying he is "a prankster" and that it was "APRIL FOOLS."

"There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well," Bieber wrote on Instagram Tuesday. "I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children. A lot of people I know, their first go to prank on April fools is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction. But I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS. I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children. A lot of people I know, their first go to prank on April fools is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction. But I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended. I truly don’t want anyone to be hurt by a prank.. it’s like when I shoved cake in my little sisters face for her birthday expecting her to laugh but she cried. You sometimes just don’t know what will hurt someone’s feelings not to compare pregnancy with cake in the face but it’s just to paint the picture of not knowing what will offend. Some might have laughed but some were offended .. I think With pranks u sometimes have to roll that dice. #prankster #dennisthemenace #sorry #truly
